Medicine Left Out Of Fridge

I accidently came home and discovered I had left my Injection Pen for Forteo Out of the refrigirator from 6 to 7 hours. I would suppose it is no longer good anymore.

I tried to call the hotline number but was told to call back Mon. thru Friday. They instructed me to call my Pharmacist. So I called him and he said he wasn't aware of the prescribing or all the requirements of Forteo. I was extremely surprised because he is a Pharmacist giving it out to people, and he doesn't know how to awnser questions about it?

I will just have to wait until Monday unless any of you know what the longest time you can leave it out before it begins to be ineffective anymore. Anyone know?
